Using X-Fade


Very new to max and currently working with a couple of more experienced people to create an installation. Basically my problem is as follows (and patch attached) I’ll try and explain as best as I can.

The patch should be pretty logical. There are two video streams- 1 called stasis and one called instrument. Basically what should happen is that ‘stasis’ opens when the patch is switched on (it does)…. upon interaction with the instrument, a new video is triggered. If after 30 seconds the patch is interacted with, another new video is triggered. The problem is that after 30 seconds into the video, stasis is being activated automatically, when the video should be playing straight through and then going back to stasis if no further interaction. I’ve narrowed this down to the x-faders, but really have no idea how I should go about adapting them so that x-fade between instrument video and stasis only happens when the video has finished playing.

Any help much appreciated!

Hey – no patch. Use copy compressed and paste directly here, or zip before upload.

Try jit.gen. It has two inputs. Make a param object inside name it xfade. Connect it to the mix object. And your done. Doesn’t fix the timing issue but is way more efficient than the standard fade object.
